It’s Peter Arno Day!


Acceptable celebrations of Peter Arno Day, named after the great panel cartoonist from The New Yorker, Circus and several of the best cartoon collection hardbacks ever published, born 103 years ago today in New York City, are as follows:

* wear a walrus-style mustache, a bunny suit, or ideally both

* address someone, anyone, as Farnsworth

* do your own thing

* draw fantastic-looking elephants

* be yelled at by an attractive member of the opposite sex

* if you can get over, get over

* always, always think on your feet

Barring any of that, you could do worse than spend a few moments on the Barnacle Press site's tribute to the iconic cartoonist, to which many of these links lead.
